Ikea has recalled seven models of children’s bed canopies due to a potential strangulation hazard, the company announced Thursday.
The affected products are made of mesh netting, and are designed to hang from the ceiling and drape around a child’s crib or bed. The canopy styles recalled are Legendarisk, Minnen, Barnslig Boll, Minnen Brodyr, Himmel, Fabler, Tisla, and Klammig. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says that the name of the canopy style is printed on the washing instructions label that is sewn onto the fabric.
Consumers using these children’s bed canopies are warned to remove them immediately, and return them to Ikea for a full refund.
According to the CPSC, there have been nine reports worldwide of children getting entangled in the bed canopies, including one in the U.S. involving a 7-month-old girl who pulled the canopy’s fabric into her crib and wrapped it around her neck several times.
Ikea stores nationwide sold the canopies, which were manufactured in Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania and Vietnam, from August 1996 through March 2014 for $10 to $30.
